Making even small changes to your diet can have big consequences for your health. These tips can help you clean up your diet for a healthier you.
• Read labels: Just because something may claim to be healthy does not in fact mean it is. Take a peek at your favorite snack’s label, paying attention to the nutrition facts and ingredients, it may not be as healthy as you think it is.
• Meal prep: Preparing your meals in advance is a helpful way to ensure you’re eating well all week long. Before your week begins, cook up a variety of vegetables, meats and grains. Then place them in containers and refrigerate. All you have to do is heat and enjoy!
• Pack your lunch: Avoid grabbing fast food during your lunch hour. Not only are you eating food that isn’t healthy for you, but those fast food bills can start to add up.
• Cut sugar in favor of other flavors: Your baked goods will be less sweet, but you can compensate by increasing other ingredients to add more flavor such as vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, or cinnamon.
